Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand may be renamed as ‘Ramganga National Park’.
Jim Corbett National Park Director Rahul on Wednesday informed that Ashwani Kumar Choubey, Union Minister of State in the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, has recently visited the park and said that it will be renamed as Ramganga National Park.
During his visit, Choubey discussed and wrote the park’s name as ‘Ramganga National Park’ in the visitors’ book which was kept in the museum located in Dhangarhi, Rahul said.
Here are some reactions:
Really? Jim Corbett Park, named after the legendary hunter turned conservationist and author, still very popular in the Kumaon and Garhwal areas, is now to be renamed Ramganga Park! What is wrong with us? pic.twitter.com/qCKKzQhi0S

Many thanks to @AshwiniKChoubey ji for changing the name of Jim Corbett National Park to Ramganga National Park! Irony was a national park was named after a killer of tiger. And later they built stories. https://t.co/TE5b2xVZ57

Another game changing move by the name changing government!
I hope they know Jim Corbett was not a Muslim and Election benefit may be limited! https://t.co/aHRUmEOpTE

Jim Corbett was and is a legend.
Not only as a writer, conservationist but a noble shikari who saved hundreds of lives by killing ‘demon possessed’ man eaters.
Read about the leopard of Rudraprayag.
Do not dishonour the memory of heroes. https://t.co/LTnDmPfW0x
